Opus was absolutely fantastic, really impressed me at the time.

Infestissumam started the more theatrical, exaggerated themes but still a well done album which I own. Saw them live on that tour, it was great.

Everything after that, hard pass for me. Yes, their entire career is tongue-in-cheek fun, but I can't even make it through a full album after LP2. So hokey, and some of the fan base became a really strange group, comparable to juggalos. No hate, just not my bag.

It's been a parody from the start.  Ghost is such an odd band in that people project on to them what they envision them to be far more than they actually accept them for what they are.  

This is incredibly true. I don't know why people keep having outstanding expectations for a band that makes Scooby-Doo metal. It's supposed to be campy and corny and exaggerated, that's the point.

I couldn't care less about all the trappings or how people interpret their aesthetic; it takes all sorts to make a World. I just don't think their music is enjoyable after the first LP. Well maybe a couple songs on the second LP, too.  I accept that bands grow and change, but I'm not wrong because I'm disappointed by their output. I always check out their stuff because I hope it will be a return to Opus, but so far, it ain't. Glad folks enjoy them. Just different strokes, etc.

Totally agree. Opus is a god damn masterpiece of Scooby Doo rock, or something. But I think their goat song is Monstrous Clock. I can loop that shit all day long.
